Back in 2008 Marie-Sophie Hindermann had a really difficult routine on the uneven bars. She only performed it once without a fall, unfortunately not at the Olympics but at an “unimportant” friendly meet. Last week, a video of her routine at a meet in February 2011 was uploaded. She competed a Jaeger, Hindorff, Pak, Shaposnikova and double tuck dismount (5.2/12.950). As the tallest competing elite gymnast she looks really great on bars. Click play or watch it on YouTube:

Nastia Liukin redesigned her website – in my opinion not for the better. But take a look on your own. She is described as an athlete, a dreamer, a rolemodel, an artist and a champion…
The German Bundesliga (DTL) asked Volker Minkus and Andreas Aguilar (1989 Worldchampion on SR) to produce an image film. I really like it: There are not too many slow motions and chalk involved and it really captures all sides of the sport – even the funny moments. See the result below or on YouTube:

And the Cincinnati gymnasts Lexie Priessman, Amanda Jetter, Amelia Hundley, Brianna Brown are getting ready for the Ranch in this Workout Wednesday of Gymnastike. I really like Lexie’s combination of turns and a scale on BB.
